The eastern side of the reserve contains a hemlock grove and a a magnificent knoll with exposed ledge. The reserve continues through an open wooded area with stone walls and large trees to another hemlock grove and a small brook. The 0.6-mile trail runs in a narrow loop to the rear of the property where it crosses a small brook.
